No waiting, polite waitstaff. We did not experience the problems that others have mentioned, and the prices do not seem out of line. Part of this may be the fact that we don't order steak anywhere.

4 of us are here... Chippeno (not sure in the spelling), BBQ ribs and pork chop dinners. Everything was wonderful. We will be back. Almost forgot, we also had desserts, Berry cobbler, cream bruela (sp?), and Bread Pudding.....best desserts ever.

Breakfast was good. The portions were big. But the bill for 5 of us plus a 2 year old was around $130 plus tip. I was happy to find a Denny’s in Aberdeen the next day on our way out of town.

Just driving around looking for a place to eat dinner we passed Alec's and decided to drop in. We ordered 2 bowls of clam chowder (thick and creamy) and the Oven Broiled Fish Platter. Three kinds of fish, oysters, shrimp all cooked to perfection and...More
